AMMAN — The third round of the Jordan Drift Championship kicks off on Friday with the participation of 23 drivers at SOFEX Racetrack in Marka.

The round which is held in celebration of the Kingdom’s Independence Day will see Hesham Issam and Abdullah Abu Hussein battle it out with 38 points each while the opportunity is clear and open for Mohammed Fuqaha, who is trailing with 36 points.

Ra’fat Haroun is in fourth place with 31 points and Othman Takriti in fifth place with 28 points.

Othman Naseef, Jordan Motorsport CEO told The Jordan Times that the door is open to a host of drivers to make the change in the standings.

“Drivers’ standings are close to each other and this will make it more exciting as anyone can reserve the first place and at the same time any mistake will have an impact on their results,” he said.

 “We hope that everyone will be able to watch this crucial round which will be very exciting and decisive too,” he added.

Drivers will be judged according to speed, angle and perfect track line (90 points), showmanship (5 points) and smoking tyres (5 points).
